Tonic

by Renee Elton

 

Read the blood

the variations

 the fact

the touch

 the craving

Cross-sections

 

Cut

 

It looks like a weaving

You plan

 

Essence

 response

measure

 perceive

 

You jump back

  1. In Renee Elton’s Tonic, I love how creativity is condensed to its core: planning, responding, perceiving. It starts with a question and ends with a creation: a surprise.

    1. Renee is truly amazing and brilliant and everything she writes holds its own original presence. A writer who has truly embraced their voice. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and impression of this poem. We appreciate your feedback and for reading with us.
